My Post-Workout Skin Care Routine

Maintaining an active lifestyle is important to me which is why I try to work out regularly. I’m fortunate enough to have a gym a couple of blocks away from my home, so I can use the cardio and weightlifting machines as often as I like. I’m usually there 4 to 5 times a week, because I like to break a sweat especially when I need to relieve some stress. I actually need to sweat it out during my cardio sessions in order to feel like I’m getting a good workout in, but if I don’t manage my sweat post-workout, it can wreak havoc on my skin.

I still follow the advice my physical trainer gave me a few years ago, ‘healthy skin post-workout starts before you step off the machines.’ Touching the same machines and equipment as other gym rats is a great way to spread bacteria to the skin thus causing breakouts. So, the best way I take care of my skin right after a workout is a good face cleaner to remove bacteria, oils, and sweat residue.

My Post-Workout Skin Care Plan

After I finish using the last machine, which is often times the treadmill, I make my way to the locker room. Sweating has already helped remove the impurities from my skin, so all I need to do now is wash my face and quickly head out the gym. I started using Olay Daily Facials Daily Clean 4-in-1 Water Activated Cleansing Cloths and they’re the best because it simplifies my post-workout skin care routine. These cleansing cloths gently breakup and lift away sweat, dirt, oil, and makeup (even stubborn mascara) on my face and they have a 4-in-1 formula that cleanse, tone, hydrate, and exfoliate in one wash.

They’re not like other cleansing cloths I’ve used in the past. In fact, I’ve always avoided facial wipes because they never effectively cleansed my skin. Instead, they just smeared bacteria, dirt and oil across it. However, that’s not the case with Olay Daily Facials which is where the difference lies. Olay Daily Facials actually wash away dirt and oil and leave my face feeling refreshingly clean and hydrated.

How to Use

The best part about Olay Daily Facials is that they come dry and you use water to activate them. Since they don’t come pre-wet, I don’t have to worry about leakage inside my gym bag or them drying out unlike other cleansing wipes.

Here’s how to wash your face with this product: After wetting with water, you rub to lather, cleanse the face (even around the eyes), rinse with the cloth, and throw away in the trash. It truly is great that I can get clean skin without having to use multiple facial products.

After a workout, when I’m at home, I finish up by taking a bath to remove the rest of the sweat and dirt off my body, towel off and apply a soothing moisturizer.

These Olay Daily Facials are the perfect addition to your post-workout skin care routine because just wiping your face after using the machines is not enough to get the job done. Your face needs that extra TLC, so pick up a pack of Olay Daily Facials.
